Like the wall the Step is symmetrical and full sidewall but this time some tip and tail rocker is added and the ski is softened overall. The step is also slight narrower then the wall but I really could not feel any difference.
Skiing the Step I found the flex is much softer then the Wall, I was finding I was struggling to hold an edge on the harder snow at speed. To be honest I don't really think my test run was that well suited for the skis with me on them. These skis would be really fun in the park for jibs. The softer flex made it really easy to get up on the tip and tail and the symmetrical shape made switch riding very easy.
They still felt nice and light and had just as much pop but for me at 5'11 and 160lbs I found the flex a little soft for what I was doing. So if you are a smaller rider or like the idea of the wall but prefer a softer ski give the Step a try.
A high performing twin tip ski, that is built to last. Shreds the terrain park all day long, and is showing barely any signs of wear and tear. This ski certainly feels like a solid piece of equipment, and I am not expecting it to be destroyed anytime soon.
Stoked to have made the swap to volkl, and am looking forward to the rest of the season ahead.
The graphic is a lot more fluorescent than the images let on, something I am not usually a fan of but was pleasantly surprised on this occasion.
